After some 23 German Nazi Medical Doctors were tried for crimes against humanity for the human experiments they carried out on unwilling prisoners of war and mentally disabled children, the Nuremberg Codes were created. The U.S. Government codified them into U.S. law.

What Are The Nuremberg Code’s Ethical Guidelines For Research?

The Nuremberg Code’s goal was to create universal standards to protect humans from enduring the cruelty and exploitation the prisoners endured in concentration camps. The 10 elements of the code are:

  1. Voluntary consent is essential
  2. The results of any experiment must be for the greater good of society
  3. Human experiments should be based on previous animal experimentation
  4. Experiments should be conducted by avoiding physical/mental suffering and injury
  5. No experiments should be conducted if it is believed to cause death/disability
  6. The risks should never exceed the benefits
  7. Adequate facilities should be used to protect subjects
  8. Experiments should be conducted only by qualified scientists
  9. Subjects should be able to end their participation at any time
  10. The scientist in charge must be prepared to terminate the experiment when injury, disability, or death is likely to occur

Yet less than 45 years later, the U.S. government, led by Dr. Fauci from the National Institutes of Health’s infectious disease, would be the focus of Congressional investigations into Fauci’s Aids treatments and vaccines tests conducted on American children. But these were foster children, orphans and mentally disabled children.


Government ethics and internal watchdogs found safety or ethics lapses on Fauci’s watch, including:

  • At least 10 children in a pediatric AIDS drug study died in what an investigation concluded was a death toll “significantly higher” than expected and unexplained.
  • An Office of Government Ethics investigation that cited NIAID for failing to review and clear two-thirds of its workers who were moonlighting in private industry for possible ethical conflicts.
  • A 1992 Department of Health and Human Services inspector general investigation that concluded NIAID failed to police two conflicts of interest in a vaccine experiment.
  • A pregnant Tennessee woman died in 2003 after she enrolled in NIH-funded research in hopes of saving her soon-to-be-born son from getting AIDS. A review found that doctors continued to administer an experimental drug regimen despite signs of liver failure.
  • In 2005, the AIDS research division under Fauci’s agency was also required to reinstate a whistleblower, Dr. Jonathan Fishbein, its chief of ethics and regulatory compliance, after he been wrongly fired in retaliation for raising safety concerns in Fauci’s agency’s research.

Aids Drug Trials on Foster Kids

In the late 1980s and 1990s, Fauci directed a series of AIDS drug trials performed on foster children. HIV-positive foster kids were funded by NIH. Several of the studies were sponsored by NIAID, a sub-institute of the NIH which Fauci began directing in 1984 and was directing at the time of the studies. Many of these kids were from very poor minority neighborhoods and Facui’s team denied kids their personal health advocate to protect their rights.

Foster children reported side effects ranging from rashes to vomiting to a significant drop in white blood cell counts. Many  children died. During a drug trial involving Dapsone, at least 10 children died.

Fauci is again at the center of an ethics scandal involving his agency’s funding of the China Wuhan Lab where the CV19 pandemic may have started. Fauci himself denied any such link from the very beginning of the pandemic in Jan 2020.

Fauci was never prosecuted, let alone reprimanded, for his unethical and unlawful use of foster kids to conduct Aids research in violation of the Nuremberg Codes.
